Butter, grass and a touch of metal. The appearance is a bit dull even for your average pale lager.

&id"Panimomestarin Nikolai" "Vaalea Lager" = Pale Lager, but I thought that was the name of this http://www.sinebrychoff.fi/page.php?page_id=106=35 Iím rating this Nikolai Vaalea Lager here under Premium Lager. Creamy, still crispy nicely. Maybe the best beer Iíve tasted so far. Because it tastes so creamy. Some chocolate-roasty malt. [0,5 can]
